RSS Facebook Feed Status

Post by thefallofroy »

So I am using the ABP theme and I am also using the RSS feed widget (lack of a better term). I have my first feed set to my Facebook and it's cool that I can read my posts and stuff from my desktop but I would love it if I could also post my status from my desktop. Since the feeds by default display 9 lines, I would like to replace the first one with an input text box and post my status inside it. I know this is possible with illustro's google widget, so it would make sense that you could do it with something else no? The only problem is I don't know what the URL for the facebook status bar would be. For the google illustro widget it's:

Code: Select all

"http://www.google.com/search?q=$UserInput$"
Anyone have any idea on what it would be for Facebook? Or if this would even be possible? Many thanks in advance.
That'll put hair on your chest...

I don't think Facebook will allow you to post anything from the URL using a GET. I doubt this is possible. Rainmeter does not support cookies or any kind of login or authentication.
